Individual counseling, also known as "Talk Therapy" or "Psychotherapy" is traditional counseling.  Though clients seldom lie down on a couch, this is the image that often floods our brains when someone mentions counseling.

Individual counseling works best when the client feels a connection with the counselor, and feels safe and secure enough to talk about his/her concerns with his/her life.  There are many reasons people seek counseling.  Sometimes it is because of severe problems like trauma, PTSD, or abuse.  Other times individuals seek counseling due to a life circumstance that is effecting their ability to function daily.  This may be a relationship problem with a friend, family member or significant other, a move, problems parenting a difficult child, or the death or loss of a loved one.  Other times, people might experience mental health concerns, such as anxiety, depression, self-harm, disordered eating or suicidal thoughts.
